VALHALLA, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Two of the six people killed in Tuesday’s Metro-North crash were remembered Friday in Westchester County.
Many young adults were among the mourners at the Dobbs Ferry funeral for Ellen Brody, a 49-year-old mother of three daughters in their teens and 20s.
“She adored her daughters and husband. She was their biggest fan and supporter,” Rabbi Benjy Silverman.
Silverman said she was “a beautiful soul” who found the beauty in others and was known for her big, warm smile. People called it “the Ellen smile.”
“One thing we’re all reflecting on is Ellen’s warmth and her positive nature,” Silverman told reporters, including 1010 WINS’ Al Jones.
Brody’s uncle, Sid Greenberg, was among the crowd packing into the Chabad of the Rivertowns for Brody’s funeral.
“Cheerful and helpful, amazing — a great mother to three beautiful daughters,” he told CBS2’s Janelle Burrell.
